How to restore the settings of the “manual mapping” window

The above steps only apply to Sprinter 11.52 (SP2) and above. (the previous versions do not support this feature)

In Data Injection sidebar, once the user tries to Inject Data or “Show Fields Mapping”, if no mapping exists for any field – the user will be prompted whether he wants to Map Manually or let Sprinter Map Automatically. The user can choose not to show the message again and then Sprinter will remember his preference.

To delete the saved preference from Sprinter (for Sprinter to show the message again), the user should do the following:

– Download the Settings.xml from ALM:

o Browse to the relevant ALM server.

o Login to the relevant domain and project.

o Select Test Resources under Testing tab.

o In the Resource tree on the right, select General under the relevant user.

o On the Resource Viewer tab, click on Download.

– Find the “PrefferedMappingType” key

– Change its value to “NotSet”.

– Upoad the file to ALM

o Click on Upload File in the Resource Viewer Tab

o Select the file you’ve updated and Click OK.

– Restart Sprinter for the changes to take place.
